Engineering, Procurement and Construction

We make your renewable energy plans a reality.
Wolrd-class EPC services

Combining German precision with African ingenuity

As a large-scale EPC service provider, we handle everything from designing the plant, to sourcing components and services, and finally constructing the power plant along with all necessary infrastructure.


Over the last 25 years, the JUWI Group has amassed a remarkable knowledge base and established an extensive global network of reliable suppliers and partners. When we merge our worldwide expertise with the 12 years we've dedicated to understanding the African ecosystem, we consistently deliver high-quality projects that exceed expectations.

Our track record in Africa

JUWI has been building large scale solar and hybrid projects for Independent Power Producers, commercial clients and mining companies since 2011.

Case Studies

Droogfontein, Waterloo and Bokomoso

In 2018, JUWI was honored to be awarded three solar projects totaling 250 MW as part of the Government's Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme. The project sponsors and equity investors included African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM), Phakwe Group, Reatile Group, and AREP.

JUWI successfully managed the simultaneous execution of all three projects, ensuring the timely and within-scope delivery of each solar plant. All of the projects went into commercial operation in 2020. This achievement was realized despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, a testament to our commitment to precision project management and adherence to budgetary constraints.

  • 250 MW of clean energy added to the South African grid

  • 2673 people from local communities were employed

  • 4207 previously disadvantaged RSA citizens employed

  • Hundreds of local high school learners received career development

Our services

We manage your project from start to finish

Here is an overview of what you can expect at each stage of the process.

EPC Project Management

To ensure your solar plant is delivered on time, in budget and up to standard, we implement strong project management practices.

This involves:

  • Creating detailed execution plans
  • Handling all communication among the JUWI team, the client, and external parties
  • Generating and sharing comprehensive progress reports
  • Monitoring costs
  • Addressing project risks
  • Developing a quality assurance plan
  • Overseeing contractual obligations, issues, and claims
Community Engagement

Large-scale construction projects in remote areas can often cause concerns for local communities. At JUWI, we recognize this and make it a priority to ensure that residents understand the purpose and process behind our projects.

Before construction commences, we establish an engagement platform that remains active throughout the project's duration. Community engagements take place regularly, guided by community leaders and other interested parties. Various structures and forums are created to facilitate ongoing interaction and open discussions on community-related matters. Some of the scheduled meetings include:

  • Public Participation Sessions: One-time mass meetings to keep the community informed.
  • Stakeholder Engagement Forum: Monthly meetings for continuous dialogue.
  • Steering Committee: Bi-monthly/Quarterly meetings for in-depth discussions.
  • Consultative Forum: Monthly on-site meetings to address specific issues.

Our commitment is to maintain transparency and foster collaboration to address any concerns and ensure a positive impact on the community.

Grid Connection

With a grid-connected renewable energy system, excess energy can be fed back into the grid, and during periods when renewable resources, such as sunshine, are unavailable, the grid can provide electricity to keep operations running without relying on a battery storage system.

Connecting a plant to the grid involves:

  • Grid assessments
  • Contract expertise
  • Grid synchronization
  • Grid stability solutions
  • Understanding of transmission and distribution infrastructure
  • Cabling and wiring
  • Grid compliance and regulation
  • Advanced control systems
  • Cybersecurity measures
  • Testing and commissioning
  • Grid monitoring and data analysis
  • SCADA Installation
